Letter of Invitation from The President of the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) President Dr. Hans R. HERREN
Kenya, April 2002 Dear prospective Congress attendee, The 15th International Plant Protection Congress (15th IPPC) will be held in Beijing, China, during July 6-11, 2003. This Congress is not only the first international plant protection congress in the 21st Century, but also the first to be sponsored by the International Association for Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) and organized by the China Society of Plant Protection. Please allow me, on behalf of the IAPPS, to invite all plant protection scientists from around the world and encourage them not to miss this important event. Plant protection issues are again at the top of the agricultural production agenda, with needs for more food while at the same time assuring sustainable, affordable and environmentally sound production and respecting the consumer‟s needs and wishes. The IAPPS is an independent umbrella organization established at the 14th IPPC in Jerusalem, Israel, in July 1999 to address important current issues in international plant protection. The Association promotes sustainable and integrated and agro-ecosystems based approach to management of plant pests and diseases and weeds. The Governing Body (GB) of IAPPS is supporting the Organizing Committee of the 15th IPPC to assure a successful Congress in Beijing. It is well known that China, the hosting country, has an ancient culture and agricultural history dating back thousands of years. According to historical records, the earliest mention of insect control is found in the Zhou Dynasty, ca. 3,000 years ago. The struggle between ancient Chinese farmers and harmful insect pests has continued to the present day, however. In recent years, the Chinese government has paid great attention to modern plant protection science and technology and has achieved notable success in controlling important insects and diseases such as the migratory locust, armyworm and wheat rust, among others. China is proud of its achievement in using 7 percent of the world‟s cultivated land to feed 22 percent of the world‟s population. Needless to say, modern plant protection has played an important role in increasing agricultural production to this level. In addition to its long history, China has a famously rich scenic beauty. Pre- and post-Congress tours can be organized at very reasonable charges and I would like you to encourage you take advantage of this very unique offer. I looking forward to welcoming you in 2003. Yours truly,

Dr. Hans R. Herren President, IAPPS and Director General The International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology


Letter of Invitation from the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 15th IPPC Prof. ZHOU Da-rong On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to participate in the 15th International Plant Protection Congress in Beijing, China on July 6-11, 2003. The venue of the meeting is the Beijing International Convention Centre (BICC). With wide range of hotels, perfect congress facilities and every effort we can make, the Organizing Committee and the China Society of Plant Protection will ensure you a scientifically informative congress and an unforgettable stay in Beijing. Beijing, the host city for the 15th IPPC, is the capital of the People's Republic of China, is well known for its long history going back 3,000 years. As the ancient capital of five dynasties, it boasts numerous historical relics and beautiful sceneries. Your visit to Beijing will be a wonderful experience to know both the old and the new China. The theme of the Congress is “The First Great Gathering for Plant Protection in the 21st Century ”. To meet the new challenge facing plant protection in the new millennium, the 15th IPPC will focus on the current progress in the plant protection sciences and technology, and its foreseeable development in the 21st Century. I look forward to seeing you and your family in the year of 2003 and am sure that all of you will have a very enjoyable and memorable experience to our beautiful and historical city of Beijing.

Invitation Letter from the President of China Association for Science and Technology Academician ZHOU Guang-zhao On behalf of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), I have the great pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th International Plant Protection Congress scheduled to take place in Beijing in 2003. I strongly suggest you to make this event a priority in planning for next year. China is the largest agricultural country in the world and it is frequently hit by natural disasters caused by plant diseases, insect pests, weeds and rodents. Therefore, plant protection is one of the key factors influencing sustainability of agricultural production. Chinese scientists have made considerable progress in research and technology development in this area. China Society of Plant Protection (CSPP), as a member society of CAST, is very active in advancing the cause of plant protection in China and in its collaboration with international scientific communities. I believe that the Congress will be of extensive professional interest to all participants and a highlight of enhancing collaboration between Chinese and worldwide scientists. CAST will make every effort to ensure that the foreign delegates come to China expediently and have an extremely successful and enjoyable experience here. I look forward to welcoming you in the coming year. Yours faithfully,

ZHOU Guang-zhao Academician President of China Association for Science and Technology

MELON RESISTANCE TO THE APHID APHIS GOSSYPII: BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS AND CHMICAL CORRELATIONS WITH NITROGENOUS COMPOUNDS CHEN Jian-qiang 1,2, Y. van Rahbe1, B. Delobel1, N. Sauvion1,2, J. Guillaud1, G. Febvay1 1 INSA, Laboratoire de Biologie Appliquee 406, UA INRA 203, SDI CNRS 5128, 20 av. A. Einstein, 6921 Villeurbanne, France 2 Biology Department, Nanjing University, Nanjing 210093, China Email: In the melon, the Vat (monogenic, dominant) resistance gene governs both an antixenotic reaction to the melon aphid Aphis gossypii and a resistance to non-persistent virus transmission, restricted to this vector species. We investigated the behavioral features and tissue localization of the antixenosis resistance by the electrical penetration graph technique, and compared the chemical composition in amino compounds and proteins of the phloem sap collected from two isogenic lines of melon (Cucumis melo L.), carrying the Vat genes or not. The data indicated that this resistance is constitutive. EPG analysis clearly showed a very reduced duration of ingestion from phloem of resistant plants. This was confirmed by clear differential activity of phloem extracts in artificial no-choice bioassys. Chemical analyses have shown that phloem saps from the two isogenic lines were extremely similar in profiles of ninhydrin positive compounds, and contained a low total amount of free amino acids. Sap collection also showed that phloem exudation rates, as well as total protein and glutathione levels, were despressed in phloem sap from resistant plants. Such data are all indicative of a modified phloem-sealing physiology, linked to sulfhydryl oxidation processes, in plant carrying the Vat gene. EFFECTIVE AND DURABLE RESISTANCE AGAINST PLANT-PARASITIC NEMATODES Sarah GOODCHILD, Peter URWIN and Howard ATKINSON Department of Biology, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT,UK Email: The success of transgenic approaches to plan-parasitic nematode resistance will require an effective and durable defence. This work aims to define new targets that can be disrupted with a deleterious consequence on the animal. Two candidate genes have been selected as putative targets. The first is a gene encoding an aspartic proteinase isolated from an H. glycines library using a PCR fragment produced by degenerate primers. The second is an aminopeptidase, also isolated from an Heterodera glycines cDNA library by heterologous probing with C. elegans EST. Recombinant proteins corresponding to both genes have been expressed in order to conduct inhibitor assays. Plant derived aspartic proteinase inhibitors have been shown to be effective in vitro and have subsequently been transformed into Arabidopsis thaliana under the control of CaMV35s promoter. Infecting the transformed plants with H. schachtii will assess the potential of these inhibitors as a defence strategy. There are no inhibitors of aminopeptidases described from a plant source, therefore synthetic peptide and antibody phage display libraries are being screened to isolate a functional inhibitor. In situ hybridisation experiments indicate that the aspartic proteinase gene is expressed intestinally whereas the aminopeptidase gene is expressed in the reproductive system.

BARLEY YELLOW DWARF VIRUS GPV ISOLATE SEQUENCING AND TRANSGENIC WHEAT OBTAINED VIA POLLEN TUBE PATHWAY CHENG Zhuo-min1, Wu Mao-sen1, XU Lei1, ZHOU Guang-he1 and P. M. Waterhouse2 1 Institute of Plant Protection, CAAS, Beijing 100094, Chian 2 Division of Plant Industry, CSIRO, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia Email: GPV is a Chinese isolate of barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) that has no reaction with antiserum of MAV, PAV, SGV, RPV and RMV. The sequence of the GPV was identified and its amino acid sequence was deduced. In the RNA- dependent RNA polymerase coding region, the length of ORF1 is 1953nt and encodes a 71.4KD protein and ORF2 is 1872nt and encodes a 70.1KD protein. The coat protein of GPV is encoded by ORF3 that gene extends for 603nt. The Mr Of coat protein is 22.2KD. The same as MAV, PAV and RPV, GPV contained a second ORF within the coat protein coding region. This protein of 17.0KD is thought to correspond to the VPg. The length of ORF4 is 453nt long. ORF5 is a 1326nt, immediately after the coat protein termination codon, and in the same reading frame as the coat protein gene. This protein is associated with the intact virus as a 72.2KD protein. The nucleotide and amino acid sequence homology of GPV has a greater identity to the sequence of RPV than those of PAV and MAV. According to BYDV GPV sequence, the cDNA of coat protein gene or replicase gene was produced by RT- PCR. The cDNAs were inserted into different plasmids to construct expression plasmids. We have developed an improved protocol for the rapid and efficient production of transgenic wheat with resistance to BYDV by using pollen tube pathway . HERBICIDES, ADJUVANTS AND EFFICACY – WHERE TO IN THE FUTURE? J. A. Zabkiewicz Plant Protection Chemistry NZ, Forest Research, Rotorua, New Zealand Email: Abstract: Spray formulation efficacy is a function of [deposition, retention, uptake, translocation and a.i. toxicity]. Each factor is considered and the influence of spray adjuvants and their involvement in the overall process is illustrated. Small droplet (100um or less) production during spray formation needs to be controlled and anti-drift agents can be added to reduce their formation. Retention for sprays by plant canopies is strongly dependent on spray formulation, largely through surfactants, and uptake into plant foliage is controlled by surfactant type and concentration. Excessively rapid uptake can result in contact phytotoxicity and reduced translocation of the herbicide to the site of action. Models and decision support systems are being developed that will permit better delivery to the target, improve retention, provide greater uptake, reduce the amounts of herbicide needed and hence contribute to environmental sustainability.
